Back in 2011, Clips4Sale offered Lindsay Lohan $50k just to pop a few balloons on camera with no nudity or sex involved, and fully clothed. Such a deal, and she would feel the rush a balloon popping at any second that most looners feel. The offer was sent to her lawyer at the time, Shawn Chapman Holley, by Clips4Sale.
“Balloons are a very popular fetish on the site,” Clips4Sale.com told AVN at the time. “We polled our users and came up with something for her that’s unobtrusive and not inflammatory at all. It would actually be a lot of fun to see her pop away. I think everyone would get a kick out of it.”
At the time of the offer, her probation was revoked and a bench warrant was issued for her after she failed a drug test, which could have earned her 60 days in jail. In times like that, $50k could have come in quite handy with her dire financial situation at the time of mounting legal fees and not working. And with plenty of people trying to burst Lilo’s bubble, it definitely would have been a chance to turn the tables. Sadly, she never responded to the offer.
